The Steam Autumn Sale, known officially this time around as the Exploration Sale, is now live.

Why is it called the Exploration Sale? Because you can "discover thousands of great deals". Much like a giant baleen whale sifting the ocean for krill. Only in this instance the krill are actually surprisingly affordable games. And the water is the internet. Or Gaben's secret bank account. I might be reading to much into the accompanying promotional image, honestly.

Among the front-page bargains are Darkest Dungeon for $12/£9, the Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition for $7/£5 (or the standalone release for $2), Life is Strange complete for $13/£11, Cities: Skylines for $15/£11, Wolfenstein: The New Order for $9/£5, or The Night of the Rabbit Premium Edition for $6/£5. (Hey, I thought Night of the Rabbit was wonderful.)

As was reported last week, the Exploration Sale is offering no flash deals or daily sales. There is a category for "Today's Highlighted Deals," but those prices, like all others, will remain in effect until the sale draws to a close on December 1.

From there he graduated to the glory days of Sierra Online adventures and Microprose sims, ran a local BBS, learned how to build PCs, and developed a longstanding love of RPGs, immersive sims, and shooters. He began writing videogame news in 2007 for The Escapist and somehow managed to avoid getting fired until 2014, when he joined the storied ranks of PC Gamer. He covers all aspects of the industry, from new game announcements and patch notes to legal disputes, Twitch beefs, esports, and Henry Cavill. Lots of Henry Cavill.
